We continue South West to Xi’an. A more friendly city than Beijing and one of the four ancient capitals of China with a population of more than 8 million people.
We go to see the Terracotta Army like all good tourists do. Despite the fascinating story surrounding them, i.e. a probably mad emperor who ordered the warriors and horses to be mde in clay to accompany him after death, we found that the exhibition of them was probably done better at the British Museum a few years ago. Bear in mind that neither of us even saw the exhibition at the British Museum.
